In his comments Mr. M. I. Deen, General Manager – Enterprise Solution of SLT mentioned, “The primary importance of software as a Service (SAAS) and a software delivery mechanism is the fact that it shifts enterprise focus from deploying and supporting software applications to using the applications as-a-service to extract strategic value to the company. Deploying complex enterprise software such as ERP and CRM applications require a significant investment in physical infrastructure, licensing costs, as well as a large team of skilled IT personnel to integrate the software with existing systems and data. This results in a financial burden to the enterprises’ activities which are not core to the enterprise businesses. With Akaza ERP, this problem is alleviated as SLT in conjunction with Bileeta will look at the customer requirements holistically from design, migration, deployment, integration, maintenance stages in the Cloud ERP initiative”
